What Information we collect

Quick cable collects information unique to customers, potential customers, and end users of our products and web site. Information includes name, company name, contact information including phone, mail and email, preferences for the web site, account information for customers that request it, document requests for controlled documents including drawing files and MSDS file requests. Additional usage information both anonymous and identifiable is recorded for marketing and site design considerations.

Various features of the web site allow people to become part of the Quick Cable community and require additional information that is either voluntary or required. This information can include contact information, preferences, credentials, and content.

How the information is used

The information that is collected is used in a variety of ways. Personally identifying information and account information is used in the processing of orders for accounts that are already established. The same information that is provided by users that are not customers is information that may be used for contact or follow up. For users interested in becoming customers, the information may be used to determine appropriateness of the account as a customer and for determining credit worthiness. Quick Cable will collect and use your Customer Identifiable Information to render services to you, respond to inquiries, or market and sell products and services to you.

Information that is supplied as part of the Quick Cable Community will be used to identify you as a contributor and may be used to verify credentials and accuracy of any content contributed. The information that is contributed and used by Quick Cable becomes property of Quick Cable and is governed by a separate policy.

Aggregate information may be used by third parties and by Quick Cable personnel to determine visitors and to create marketing and sales programs.

When providing an email address user accounts are asked to opt-in to any marketing communications for Quick Cable or its subsidiaries. Communications which are relevant to the account or account holder will be sent regardless of the opt-in status. These are considered essential communications and will not be used for marketing purposes. If a user opts in for an email, they may receive any type of marketing communications.

Where the information is stored

The information that is collected is stored on electronic equipment owned by Quick Cable or third parties contracted by Quick Cable to store the information. The data may be stored anywhere in the world and is governed by the laws of the United States or the host country if necessary.
